Giving Tuesday Unofficial Results

On behalf of all of GHNI's staff, volunteers, villagers, and partners, we would like to sincerely thank you for all you did to support us on Giving Tuesday this year!

Whether you were a donor, advocate, or social networker, you played a key role in our Giving Tuesday success. The numbers are still being finalized, but here's a summary of what we know so far.





Treating All in Need


Dr. Fadi saw many patients this quarter and most could be directly diagnosed and treated in the clinic. Among the cases he treated were pain syndromes, gastrointestinal issues, various infections, skin conditions, and chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and inflammatory diseases. A few patients needed to be referred to specialists and hospitals. Some patients were sent for lab tests outside of the clinic, but many were not able to afford the cost of the tests that Dr. Fadi wanted them to have.

Mainasara and Fatima had opportunities for re-training and traveling in the course of the last quarter and at the beginning of the present quarter. The travels that took them out of Koubah Bingo for weeks, coupled with the rainy /farming season activities, resulted in the Transformational Community Development (TCD) activities being scaled down. Mainasara was asked to attend the TCD Training of Teachers course 1 (TOT 1) that was held in Port-Novo, Benin Republic in mid-August by way of a refresher course.


Why Should You Participate in Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday started in 2012 as a response to consumerism after Thanksgiving, specifically Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It started small, but each year, more and more organizations and donors have participated worldwide.
